Listening to classical music by candlelight in a beautiful setting sounds like the peaceful haven we all need.
Calm your mind and experience classical music in a new light with these sensational concerts in some of Minneapolis’ most historic and stunning venues. The Granada Theater, once an iconic theater from the silent film era, is now a contemporary Spanish-Revival-style Uptown entertainment hub. Built in 1927 and inspired by outdoor theatre, this venue has remnants of its classic Churrigueresque style, named for José Benito de Churriguera (1665–1725), a Spanish architect who first used the style on churches.
The Candlelight series is also coming to the Calvary Baptist Church where atmosphere meets Chopin’s classics. Established in 1886, this historical venue is part of the densely diverse Whittier neighborhood nicknamed “the international neighborhood” by locals. Concerts will be held at this ever-changing, yet important part of the community.
Finally, the most expansive venue to host upcoming Candlelight Concerts is the Westminster Presbyterian Sanctuary, a venue steeped in history found on the National Register of Historic Places. This architectural gem features a semi-circular design that can seat 1,500 guests and truly sparkles under the glow of hundreds of flickering candles.
Throughout the seasons, this concert series known simply as “Candlelight” invites everyone to relive the greatest works of classical and contemporary music, from Bach to Beatles, soul music from the greats like Aretha Franklin, and songs from magical movie soundtracks, like the Lion King.
And after having enormous success in US cities—like New York, Chicago, Detroit, and LA—and cities around the world—like Paris, Barcelona, and London—the experience is here in Minneapolis and has been charming classic music lovers and culture lovers alike.
